Vase Bottom Layer Help

Posted · Vase Bottom Layer Help

Hello I’ve recently gotten into printings various vases for the artistic side and how they show off printer and filament quality too. Anyhow for the life of me I cannot change the bottom layer, it automatically sets the bottom layers to a spiral pattern except if I enable ironing but only the ironing pattern option works. No matter what I set the bottom layer or layers to they are made into an inner wall layer and I can’t change the pattern no matter what pattern I select. I’d like to have my bottom layer a zigzag pattern for better cosmetics and rigidity. Any advice or help is appreciated thanks!!

    The only bottom pattern available when using Spiralize in Cura 5.x is "Concentric".  It is "Expected Behavior" and not a bug.

    There have been a number of people not happy about this.

    @nallath might have more on this topic as it has come up both here and on Guthub.

    Is this new in 5.0? Can I use a 4.?? Version or is it different in 5.1, I haven’t had time this week to try it yet. I got my hopes up when I saw the bottom layer pattern option but nope. Maybe there’s a script that can be used to make the bottom layer something different possibly idk??

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
